Hi everyone, and welcome back to the latest installment of "reasons why humanity is doomed."
After appalling images surfaced from Mobile, Alabama, of two police officers treating the homeless almost as if they're subhuman, we're glad to hear a story like this one. A police officer decided to sit with a homeless woman and share a pizza together.
Keep scrolling to see why this story is so important for society...
Homelessness is a real issue.Last year, a total of 552,830 people here in the United States experienced homelessness on at least one occasion.
These statistics are completely barbaric.Because the fact that such a wealthy and sophisticated society doesn’t have steps in place to help its citizens stay off the streets is nothing short of shameful.
We should be helping to end the homelessness crisis...Not fuel it. While most of us will donate money to charities that aim to tackle the problem, or buy a homeless person a meal or a hot drink, there are some people who go out of their way to alienate the homeless even further.
Many homeless people turn to begging.Because depending on the kindness of strangers really is their only option.
And, on occasion...A homeless person may even be invited to sit down and enjoy their food like any other normal person as you'll see later.
But things are never that easy for some people...One police force, from Mobile, Alabama, seems to have quite a different idea about how to respect other human beings and when we heard the news, we were all left shocked.
Many homeless people use signs, like this.They're a great (and cost-effective) way to help them communicate with a world that just wants to ignore them.
But, for the police in Mobile?Well, these signs gave them a pretty horrific inspiration.
However, these officers decided to make signs they had confiscated into a "quilt."And to make matters worse? Well, the 2 officers decided to post the image of their creation on social media, for the whole world to see.
At the time, the post was quickly removed.
